GEH Nuclear Energy celebrates three-nation plan for BWRX-300 standard design
“I’m glad you came to our party!” said GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) chief nuclear officer Nicole Holmes as she prepared to announce that Wilmington, N.C.–based GEH will develop a standard design for its BWRX-300 boiling water small modular reactor with not one but three power producers representing three countries: Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), Ontario Power Generation (OPG), and Synthos Green Energy (SGE). Celebration was a theme throughout the March 23 event held in Washington, D.C., which was flush with dignitaries representing the United States, Canada, and Poland.

The management of advanced reactor waste and HALEU fuels will have some similarities to managing SNF from the current LWR fleet, but the new form factors and uranium assays will also require nuanced adjustments to cask designs, certifications, and disposal requirements. It will likely be prudent to identify these differences as early as possible so that accommodations can be made for the differences. This panel will also discuss what changes might be necessary to the existing infrastructure and what is being done to prepare for future storage, shipments, and disposal.
